Kitchen recessed LED light flickering

I've got some flat LED lights in my kitchen and recently one of them has begun flickering. Is there a particular way to troubleshoot one of these? It seems like it will flicker when it turns on but then stops flickering after a few minutes. This is the kind of light I'm talking about:

Recessed Ultra-thin LED light

They are light bulbs. Replace the bad ones.

If you have another LED light that isn't flickering switch connections at the driver. If the flickering light still flickers, the bulb needs to be replaced. If the light that wasn't flickering is flickering that driver output is bad. If the driver has no spare outputs, the driver needs to be replaced.

These aren't bulbs, they're those flat LED panels

"These aren't bulbs, they're those flat LED panels"

Yes, it is in fact a light bulb. It is a different technology than an old fashioned incandescent but it is a self contained light producing device. There are no serviceable parts. When if fails you replace it.

Right, but the original is no longer available. I am going to take it apart and see if it's the transformer or if it's the light itself.

There are many ways to convert AC to DC power for LED lamps. Your driver may or may not use a transformer. A driver per lamp makes the lamp expensive.
